"The theme created made us immediately popular with our target group: young adults and gave us the idea for our cafe's name"
We approached the Sites and Spaces team with only an empty space and an idea of the kind of cuisine we wanted to serve for a target group of college kids and young office goers. Also we had to be ready for business by the time cricket world cup 2010 started in a month's time. The SnS team came up with the idea of the cafe taking on the look of a streetside hangout. The street was completed with pavements, street lights, building, garages and cars for a very genuine roadside hangout feel that made us very cool. The name Al-Barkha street was also suggested in keeping with their theme. Even though there are a lot of competition from other cafes and gaming parlours in our area, we are easily the most popular with the hip crowd. The want to be seen here.
